The Used Kitchen Company (TUKC), one of the UK’s leading ex-display and used kitchen resellers, is celebrating its 17th anniversary.
The company was established in 2005 by Looeeze Grossman after she saw a lot of perfect kitchens ending up in landfill. Since then, the company has listed 8,000 kitchens, saving 30,000 tons of waste going to landfill.
During the last 17 years, Grossman has worked with showrooms, dismantlers, and fitters, as well as the end customer, to make them feel comfortable with recycling their kitchens and buying used kitchens.
Looeeze Grossman, the founder of The Used Kitchen Company, said: “We are thrilled to be celebrating over seventeen years in business. As the market leader in this industry, we’ve helped our customers be more sustainable when it comes to their kitchen renovations, and also save money and reduce landfill contributions in the process. We’re very grateful to all the brands that have joined our mission over the years, without them we wouldn’t have the most extensive collection of used and ex-display kitchens.
“Knowing The Used Kitchen Company has simultaneously been a major force in cutting back on the unnecessary waste sent to landfill is another huge buzz for me and our team and one that keeps us motivated and determined to convince all home renovators to recycle their kitchen.”
The website is a marketplace for used and ex-display kitchens and a dedicated section for bathrooms, bedrooms and home furnishings, which continues to grow year after year.
Over 1,200 kitchen showrooms in the UK work with TUKC to sell their displays. Selling the displays via TUKC means that the showroom does not have to store the displays or have the extra expense of hiring a skip.
Grossman concluded: “It’s never been a more exciting time to be in business, as new kitchen sales continue to rise, we see the direct impact with the increase in used kitchens we sell. We may have had 17 amazingly successful years under our belt, but we know there are so many more to come.”
To celebrate 17 years as a company, TUKC will announce a number of new partnerships and the launch of another sustainability initiative.
